Vinatieri Signs with the Colts

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that Belichick knows something that we don't know? Name one player he has let go who hasn't shown diminished skills -- and yes, that goes for now-blimpy Ty Law, despite his deceptive stats.

Top 25 Baseball Innovations

What belongs in the Top 10 is the incessant barrage of ridiculous mini-advertisements we have to put up with at every opportunity DURING the game: from "the McDonald's I'm Lovin' It Starting Line-up" to "the Goodyear Tire Player of the Game" (not to mention "the Lo-Jac Caught-Stealing replay," or the "Rolaids How-Do-You-Spell Relief incoming pitcher statistics," or "the Safe at Home Depot moment," or "the WaterPik Professional Oral Cleaning System Pick-off attempt replay," or "the ‘Oh what a feeling!’Toyota game-recap", or...

Very superstitious, writing's on the wall

An hour before every Patriots playoff game, I like to get laid for good luck, among other reasons. But before last week's abominable loss to Denver, my girl wasn't "about to hang around for a stupid football game on a Saturday night." And guess who scored 24 of their points on a total of 27 yards? HINT: It wasn't the Patriots. A coincidence, you say? Prior to that, Brady was 10-0 in the playoffs and I was one contented guy. Then she flew the coop,but I definitely got screwed by the referees. Ain't that a bitch?

Official was wrong

Yeah, they'll fine Joey Porter, all right-- a token $15,000 or so, which is the equivalent of what would be pocket-change for you and I. But the most atrocious call regarding this game was Pussy Peyton throwing his O-Line under the bus after the game. You don't do that in public after these guys have been busting ass for you all game. It just ain't cool.

Carolina Skunks New York

It's time most knucklehead fans woke up to Brady (10-0 in the playoffs with 3 rings working on 4)whose stature will grow after the fact -- much like putting a Presidential admnistration into historical perspective after his years in office. Please explaim to me how Brady finished second to P.Manning last year in the MVP voting because "Manning had the better numbers even though Brady had the wins," and this year, Brady finishes behind Manning because "Manning had the wins, even though Brady had the better numbers." Huh? And by the way, it's Bill BeliCHICK, not Bill BeliCHECK.

So, the two guys in charge of the Bills have a total age of 164. Nice youth movement.The Pats should be the divisional champs for the next 15 years - or as long as Brady and Belichick stick around.

THIS JUST OUT: WASHINGTON,D.C.(AP)- Sadaam Hussein may have hidden his Weapons of Mass Destruction in undisclosed areas of Canada -- with that country's knowledge -- according to a high-ranking source and American hockey fan in the White House. As a result, the Joint Chiefs of Staff are planning a possible invasion of, what Vice President Dick Cheney called, "those evil-doing Canuck bastards north of the border."

It's obvious to me that the NFl fears lawsuits due to all those hand-walkers getting tangled up. It could cause a chain-reaction of mass carnage and mangled post-45 limbs. And that would be very, very ugly.
